Mission Statement

We, Divine Infant Jesus Roman Catholic Parish, are a welcoming and vibrant faith community serving the people of Westchester since 1947. We live out our Baptismal call, handed on by Jesus Christ through his Apostles, to teach and heal.  As Christ’s Body the Church, we seek to accomplish this call by fostering spiritual growth through the celebration of the Sacraments and by planting the seeds of faith through the Ministries of our School, Religious Education program, and Parish organizations. We are called to the Sunday celebration of Eucharist to be transformed into the image of Christ so that we may be sent forth to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world and to call all to a deeper relationship with God.
